The Undefined Script

Being someone who has never left home even for a single night, it became extremely difficult for me to adjust in the new hostel life where I am not known and I know nobody. The thought of independence excited me always and not a single day in my life has gone without the enthralling thought about living on my own

How Will I Ever Get Out Of This Labyrinth?

At one juncture or another of our journey in this world we always find ourselves entrapped in the enigma we call life. Humans have not really decoded the true meaning of living, let alone the meaning of happy-living. But still somehow we have decided parameters for the same

Lost in Oblivion

Wings in the Starry Night

Darkness sneaks upon the ground,

As the shadows become obscure.

The tired wings fly homeward,

Through a sullen red sky.

What am I Leaving Behind

Don’t be Sorry. If you would have appreciated the little gestures and been kind to others, the story of your after life would have been different. Valour, name, a sense of pride and satisfaction is what I did leave for the world. But what have you left?
